    Go To Start > Run and type msconfig

    A window will pop-up. In that go click on the start-up tab abd uncheck all the programs that u do not want to start at boot-up. You are done.

    When you reboot after that it will give a message saying your systems settings have been modified or something like that, just click on the check box that says do not show me this message again and click on OK.
